North East Open Studios (NEOS) is one of the UK’s largest open studios events. Across nine days in September 2018 the festival will celebrate the variety of creative talent in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

Marking its 15th festival year, the 2018 NEOS invites you to discover the diverse range of artists and makers in North-east Scotland as they yet again open their studio doors. Come along and experience the passion of the artists, learn what makes them tick, get excited by their creativity, enjoy hand-on workshops and discover art at its grass roots.

As part of the Year of Young People the festival is set to encourage the next generation of aspiring artists, with roadshows and pop up events through the year.

The NEOS Book, a guide to the exhibitors, will is now available.
